Leco, fully equipped ecological station designed by Flussocreativo, It has a young and colorful appearance, with a strong playful reference imprinted in the collective memory.

 It 'a siatema of containers for waste collection, composed of five elements in the low density polyethylene (LDPE), two of which for the aluminum and the glass, in the respective blue and green colors and two, of larger size, for the white and yellow card for plastics. The four elements are positioned in turn on a fifth element, gray color, which serves as a base.


The originality of the shape of Leco stands out from the classic container for separate waste collection, trying to involve the user through two fundamental aspects: the pleasant aesthetics and the modular functionality.
Leco is clearly a reference to "Lego", a global game that increases the ability to manage and combine small objects from an early age, stimulating creativity.

Hence the desire to create, even if for a delicate topic such as environmental sustainability, the possibility of interacting with the containers in a pleasant way, overcoming aesthetic and formal obstacles. This vision led us to the creation of a collector that had the capacity to attract attention, as well as for its function, for its ability to solve space problems and encourage the daily practice of separate waste collection.

Specifically, each individual container is composed of an outer shell in LDPE with the two ends of the assembly times, which refer in a very intuitive way to the ease of interlocking between typical elements of the game "Lego"; while in the front part, always LDPE, there is provided a full drawer with metal frame for the accommodation of the bag.
The hypothesized technology for the production of Leco is rotational molding, with adequate measures for housing necessary inserts, as the guides for the sliding of the drawer and drowned bolts for fastening the frame of the bag.

The suitable material for the production of Leco is the low density polyethylene, that is one between materials, together with the PET and HDPE, easily recoverable and recyclable from post-consumer; It has a very good dimensional stability and is usable without problems of fragility and breakage up to 80 ° C and can be easily colored. The processability of LDPE is done through different technologies such as extrusion, blow molding, injection molding and rotational methods as in the case of the Leco station.

Leco is a new solution, engaging and colored to try to improve the ability to spontaneously recycling, contributing daily to environmental protection.
